Expert Answers about Hitch Anti-Rattle


  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device for Towing Camper
  • There are several anti-rattle devices that would be good to use when towing. The construction of your ball mount will determine the best choice for your application. Solid shank ball mounts require an anti rattle that mounts to the outside, where hollow shanks give the option for a different mounting style. The Etrailer Anti-Rattle Hitch Stabilizer for 2" Hitches # e99007 you mentioned can be used in a variety of ways including bike racks, cargo carriers, tow bars and any other hitch...

  • Need Larger Version of Malone MPG908 Anti-Rattle Device for 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • Malone doesn't make that particular anti-rattle device in a size for a 2-1/2 inch receiver, but might have a thing or two that could work for you. Take a look at the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp, part # 325-GH-063. The wedge portion is 1 inch long as you see in the photo, but it's tapered so it'll wedge in between the ball mount or hitch accessory shank and the receiver tube. The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, part # RM-062 is another possibility, the u-bolt portion is 15/32 of an inch thick. From...

  • Anti rattle and Hitch Alignment Pin For 2 Inch Hitch Accessories
  • We have designed different products to solve a specific problem, but not all at once. For all your attachments that do not have a threaded hitch pin hole, we use this anti rattle device # e99007. This is great for the two inch hitch accessories that come with just a hitch pin. If you have one of our products like one of our etrailer cargo carriers # e98874 you can use our LOCKING anti rattle bolt # e99047. Our carriers come with anti rattle bolts, but this one allows you to lock it to your...

  • Adapter Needed to Convert Thule T2 Bike Rack to 2 inch Hitch form 1-1/4 inch Hitch
  • For the version of the Thule T2 bike rack that you have TH9035XT the only solution you have is the # HT02 since a replacement shank isn't currently available. For a hitch lock to use with this I would go with the # 63232 which also acts as an anti-rattle device.

  • Sleeve Style Anti Rattle Device for 2 Inch Hitch Extender
  • We have just what you're looking for with the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp for 2" Hitch Receivers # 325-GH-033. The sleeve acts as a wedge to take out play between your hitch receiver and extender. Although it does not not require a wrench and a significant amount of force to install, like an anti rattle bolt would, it will require you to use the included Allen tool to tighten down the two set screws on the corners. I've found the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp to be much more effective than the...

  • Will the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer Work On a Factory Trailer Hitch
  • I do have an option for you but there would be no way for me to confirm the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer part # 63080 will work with a factory trailer hitch as it is designed specially for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receivers. That said, if I had to guess I would say no as the collar must be an exact match. However, I do have a similar option in the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-033. The Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp like the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer works to reduce...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Towing and Bike Racks
  • I have two favorites when it comes to anti-rattle devices. The first is the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches part # RM-061 the other is the Curt Anti-Rattle Kit for 2" Trailer Hitches part # C22321. The Blue Ox Part # BX88312 is one that works good as well but the size limits it's ability to work in some situations. Either the Curt or roadmaster will work really well for your ball mount and eliminate most all play you experience. I would go with the Roadmaster but it does...

  • Will the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II Fit a Ram 2500
  • The u-bolts on the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II part # BX88225 are only 3/8" diameter so as long as you have this much space it will work. That said, you will need to measure as we have not yet tested this. If it won't work we do still have an option in the Gen-Y Iron Grip Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin part # GY99FR which doubles as a lock and anti-rattle. Check out the review video I did below.

  • We do not actually do any tests of the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount w/ 2" and 2-5/16" Balls - 15K # C83WR because we do not manufacture the item, it is simply a product we offer for sale. As for your other questions, the core is made of polyurethane; there is not a specific amount of time it is expected to last; and it will do just as well in cold weather as it does warm weather.

Instead I recommend the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches # RM-061-125 which works in the same manner, but is only available in the raw zinc plated steel finish. I included a video of the # RM-061-125 for you to take a look at.

  • Will Stainless Steel Locking Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin SR25219 Thread Into Yakima On Ramp 2"?
  • The Stainless Steel Locking, Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin for 2" Trailer Hitches # SR25219 works with most bike racks that have a hollow shank, but since the Yakima OnRamp E-Bike Platform Bike Rack with Ramp - 2" Hitches # Y36FR came with a threaded insert and anti-rattle bolt already, you will need to stick with a Yakima branded hitch pin and lock. It looks like you have the anti-rattle bolt already, so if that is the case then you just need the HitchLock for Yakima Hitch Mounted...

First, though, the etrailer Anti-Rattle Hitch Stabilizer for 2" Hitches, part # e99007, is not designed to be used with this kind of setup.

  • It sounds like you would like to know the difference between an anti-rattle locking pin like part # 63232 and an U-bolt style anti-rattle like part # RM-061 and to be honest they both work well. However, the anti-rattle locking pin does require an accessory with a hollow shank or a ball mount with a hollow shank for the components of the pin to fit inside properly. An anti-rattle locking pin does help take away the rattling you may hear with an accessory or ball mount inside the hitch by...

  • Replacement Bolt for the Softride Bike Extender Bar with the Softride Bike Rack
  • The Softride Bike Rack Extender Bar # SR26033 is meant to replace the existing hitch bar on your Softride Bike Rack like the Softride Hang 2 # SR27041. I attached a picture with the pieces side-by-side so you can see how it replaces and "extends" the hitch bar. Once you've uninstalled the old hitch bar and replaced it with your extender, you can use the anti-rattle bolt that came with your bike rack to attach the rack to your hitch receiver. You are correct in that the bar only has holes...

  • Recommended Solution to Reduce Movement of Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack
  • In order to tighten up your Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack # Y36FR on your Curt trailer hitch I recommend using the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches # RM-061. This hitch immobilizer keeps hitch-mounted accessories stable and secure. As you tighten the Quiet Hitch, the shank of your accessory will be pulled down towards the bottom of the receiver opening, thus securing it in place within the tube.

  • Is There a 3" to 2" Reducer Available for a 2021 Ford F-350?

I do not suggest using multiple reducers with weight distribution, so the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 will adapt your 3 inch receiver to a 2 inch without the need of one in between them. I do suggest using an anti rattle device when using a reducer with a weight distribution system, however, and the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer # BLU85QR is designed to fit 3 inch hitches and will keep everything nice and secure...

  • How To Use A 1-1/4" Bike Rack On 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee With 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I have a solution for you, but the only trailer hitch receivers available for your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee are 2". In order to use your 1-1/4" with a 2" hitch receiver you will need to use a reducer sleeve such as Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" # HT02. The 1/2" pin is included for the 1-1/4" accessory end. For the 2" end I recommend using Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232 which will keep everything tight and reduce any rattle/wiggle. If you do not have a trailer hitch receiver...

  • Can Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier be Used at Highway Speeds
  • Yes, you can absolutely travel on the highway at highway speeds using the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18113. This is a great option for a cargo carrier because it is aluminum so it is extremely lightweight at just 25 lbs, making it much easier than other carriers to handle. It does come with a hitch pin, but you can add a lock to it and secure it to your Murano with the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # 63232.

This is smaller in size and is specifically designed for 2" hitches. The wedge style of these anti-rattle devices has offered very good stabilization when needed. I do need to mention that with this being a wedge style device, it may need a little force to get it in the hitch and working properly. I included a review video we have of the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle...

  • How to Stabilize a 2 in. Bike Rack with Adapter in a 1-1/4 in. Hitch
  • You can use the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 to stabilize the 2" bike rack in the adapter and the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061-125 to stabilize the adapter in the hitch. While using an adapter in a 1.25" hitch to use a 2" bike rack is not a great idea, technically you can do it. What you would need to keep in mind is that using the adapter is going to reduce your hitches weight capacity by 50%. You will need to ensure that your bike rack and bikes do not exceed the weight limit of...

The U-bolt is 4-1/4 inches tall overall and 2 inches wide on the inside. This should allow for snugging your ball mount into your receiver depending on the reducers used.

  • Will XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Fit 3 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • The Gen-Y Iron Grip Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin # GY49FR (part GH-023 you mentioned) is designed for solid shanks but the XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2-1/2" Hitches # SHP2040-XL uses that block that sits inside a hollow shank so the shank is puled tight to the side of the receiver. The usable pin length of this part is 3-7/8" which should be more than enough for your 3" receiver but it doesn't hurt to double check on your end. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

It is also the more cost effective option between the two. I have linked a diagram below that shows the dimensions.

Because the collars on the hitch receivers can vary in thickness from manufacturer to manufacturer, chances are the 63080 will not work with your Haul Master adapter. If you're looking to reduce the rattling between the 2" receiver portion of your adapter and an accessory, I recommend the...

For this, I recommend to use the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-063 between the receiver tube and sleeve and the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-033 between the sleeve and ball mount.

  • Does Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232 Have Towing Capacity

As long as you are using this hitch lock in the correct size hitch it's going to fit and work well and you would not have to worry about exceeding any weight capacities.

If your receiver meets that requirement, the # SHP2040-XL will help prevent your expensive ball mount from walking off. It also works with the OEM adapter sleeves.

  • I have another option for you, but since the 1-1/4" to 2" adapter included with your Hollywood Racks Trail Rider Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HR200Z is inside of the receiver the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061-125 will not work. Since your bike rack includes an anti rattle hitch pin you do not need an additional stabilizer, but if you would like extra stability you will want to go with the Curt Stabilization Strap # 18050. This will get wrapped around...

  • Best Hitch Receiver Anti-Rattle For Bike Rack In 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • You hit the nail on the head with the best option for a hitch anti-rattle for your 2 inch trailer hitch to use with your bike rack, which is the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II - 2" Hitches # BX88224. The reason I like the Immobilizer II so much is it has a completely unique double U-bolt design, with U-bolts grasping the shank at both the side and the bottom, which allows for added stability of your bike rack inside the receiver. I have added a photo which shows the Immobilizer...

  • Anti-Rattle Option For Weight Distribution Hitch
  • You can use an anti-rattle device with your weight distribution hitch, though I do recommend going with a different option than part # e99007 as that is more for things like accessories. Instead, what I recommend is a device from Roadmaster, and the right one will depend on if you have a 2 inch or 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch: - Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches # RM-061 - Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # RM-062 The Quiet Hitch is for heavier-duty applications...

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Hitch Immobilizer for Motorcycle hauler
  • The Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover for 2" Hitch Receivers # 63080 is not the heavy duty anti-rattle stability holder for the weight of a motorcycle carrier. For that kind of stabilization you are seeking, I recommend the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II - 2" Hitches # BX88224 which will give you stability and support both vertically and horizontally. This is what I'd want to use for my motorcycle. If you want something a little more subtle that will also help stabilize...

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Hollywood Racks Road Runner 4 Bike Carrier
  • For your Hollywood Rack Road Runner 4 Bike Carrier # HR400 I recommend the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232. This anti-rattle pin will dramatically reduce any movement/wobble you are experiencing on the rack by pulling the rack's shank tightly against the side of the hitch receiver wall. It also features a 90 degree barrel-style lock and includes 2 keys to help deter theft of your investments. I have attached a short video demonstration on this anti-rattle lock that you...

For that we have the part # SHP2082 which doubles as a hitch lock but would only work if your ball mount has a hollow shank.

Instead I would recommend the part # 63232 as this is an anti-rattle device that will work in your hollow ball mount and also has a lock built into the device as well.

They all basically do the same thing overall but they go about it in a slightly different way and some have pros and cons. The least expensive part number # MT70258 that you referenced is effective but it has the highest probability of damaging the finish of the hitch since the pressure it puts on the hitch accessory comes from two bolts that will...

  • The etrailer Anti-Rattle Hitch Stabilizer for 2" Hitches - Vinyl Coated Steel # e99007 you were looking at is designed for the plate to be on top of the receiver and accessory with the bent portion of the plate resting on the shank of the accessory in your hitch. This will push the accessory down and keep it from rattling. I included a video of the # e99007 for you to take a look at.

If this will not work for you due to the position of the safety chain loops then the only other option I would have is a wedge for the 2" shank, the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-033.

  • Anti-Rattle Options for Curt # C18153 Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • The Curt # C18153 doesn't have a threaded insert for an anti-rattle hitch bolt, but that does not mean that there aren't anti-rattle options available. For a locking hitch pin with an integrated anti-rattle feature, I'd recommend the # 63232. Another option would be a locking hitch pin like part # e98882 and a separate anti-rattle device like # RM-061. Both options are pretty effective, but I'd lean toward the # 63232 because it's going to be easier to install and remove. I've linked...

  • If you are speaking of using a locking hitch pin/anti-rattle device like part # 63232 with the # 52015, the parts are indeed compatible. The shank of the basket adapter is hollow, so the lock/anti-rattle would work great. If however you were speaking of the bolt on which the basket would pivot, the 5/8 inch diameter of the pin is too large to fit through that opening.

That said, even if it were to fit it would likely not reduce wobble any more than the threaded hitch pin included with the bike rack.

  • Can I Drill a 2nd Hole in My Hitch Receiver to Use A J Pin Stabilizer?
  • Drilling a hole in your hitch receiver will void your manufacturer's warranty if something were ever to go wrong with it. For that reason, I think the best solution to use an anti-rattle hitch pin that won't require any drilling, like the # 63232 . This anti-rattle hitch receiver pin will help eliminate rattle but also provide a secure connection with its keyed lock so that you won't have to worry about any receiver mounted accessories "walking away" while unattended.

  • Can Anti-Rattle Device Be Used with Weight Distribution
  • With the amount of spring bar force at work with your E2 weight distribution it is surprising that you are experiencing any type of movement in your hitch. The spring bars should be placing a substantial amount of tension on the shank against the walls of the receiver, thus keeping it firmly in place. That being said a # RM-061 could be used on the shank of your system and would help reduce movement.

If you have a larger collar, then I recommend the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II - 2" Hitches # BX88224 or an internal system like the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span # 63232.
